Teriyaki burger with pineapple was delicious!! I usually can't finish burger but had no problem with this one. My husband ordered double and also enjoyed. Fun atmosphere.

When my husband sees a line for a burger place we have to eat there. Neither of us were disappointed. The burgers are freshly made with coarsely ground beef that adds texture. They have a special relish and recommend no lettuce or tomato. The beef is so delicious you don't need anything but the burger, onions, and relish, Fries were... More

Ate here the week after Christmas 2014. I saw the reviews, was craving a burger, so had to try it. Overall, I'm glad I did. The burger and fries were excellent. My 'beef' with this place is the snail-paced service. These are not exaggerations - stood in line for about 45 minutes waiting to place an order, took about 5... More

neat little burger shack. Tables beside the quaint highway (in Hanalei it's more like a country road). We enjoyed our chili burger, but it is more the atmosphere than the food. Next time I want a simple burger and soda, while in Hanalei, I will stop in again. Good solid food.

Was very surprised at the quality, taste and service of my Bubba Burger experience. It was worth the wait in line. Easy to miss when you drive through town...just look for the line into the front door.

We stopped here for a quick bite. The food was very good as was the service. I would go again if I had the opportunity.

Like to stay as positive as possible. The service was good. Definitely felt more like a shirt shop with a burger joint attached. The locals we talked to were very vocal about the burger quality vs price. I had a very hard time believing the patties were "grass fed local beef". The patties are only 1/6th of a pound pre...

Best Juicy burger I've ever tasted. It's so popular that there's always a line up and be prepared to wait about 15-20 minutes for your order. The wait is worth it!

Depending on when you go, there can be a fairly long line up, but the quality of the beef and materials is very good. If you want a more natural taste that focuses on the beef and not the toppings, this is a good burger.

It was great. Have a burger. I tried the rice bowl thing and that was fun too. So glad to find clean meat.
